STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in the one God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, being conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. His substitutionary death on the cross, according to the Scriptures, was for our sins. He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and is at the right hand of God as our High Priest and Advocate.
3MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the One promised by Christ whose ministry it is to glorify God, to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, to regenerate, sanctify, comfort, guide, and empower the believer. We believe that He indwells every true believer.
4THE WORD OF GOD
We believe the Old and New Testaments to be the infallible Word of God, fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and fully and supremely authoritative for all matters of life, faith and conduct.
We believe in the total depravity of humankind, and that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only grounds for salvation for all who repent and fully embrace His finished work on the cross.
We believe that all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church composed of those who through faith in Jesus Christ have been united together in the body of Christ. The Church is called out to offer acceptable worship to God and to fulfill His purposes through the proclamation of the gospel with power, making disciples of all nations, by tending the flock through the ministry of the Word, sacraments and pastoral care, and manifesting His justice, deliverance and healing in the world.
Water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed and administered by the Church in this age until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that by the return of Christ to raise the dead, to judge all people and to establish His Kingdom, God’s redemptive purposes will be consummated.
